Rich and Dr. Snellings will be joined by Alex Kennedy, NBA Insider for BasketballInsiders.com.  What are the futures of many key Celtics players such as their starting backcourt of Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley? What direction will the team take this off-season? Is Kevin Love a possibility? And how about help elsewhere, such as a rim protecting center in Omer Asik? One of the most connected members of the NBA media, Kennedy should give the Celtics Beat audience the answers.  Whether they are answers they want to hear is another story. And while the Celtics horrific season is coming to an end, the real NBA season is just picking up with the NBA Playoffs right around the corner.  Brian Mahoney of the Associated Press follows the league as close as anyone.  Will Miami come out on top again? And what about the MVP race? In what has become nothing more than another LeBron James yearly coronation, will this be the year someone else finally wins it? Kevin Durant, perhaps? We'll ask Brian what his MVP ballot is. Rich and Dre cap off the show by going Around the NBA in 5.

LHR and Dr. Andre Snellings also touch on Larry’s three-part series that has been running on CLNSRadio.com all weekend: The Worst Members of the Boston Celtics ...Ever.  With this painful Celtics season nearing its conclusion, well why don’t we antagonize ourselves even more?

And how is she handling this Celtics season, and what are her feelings on the future outlook of the franchise? LHR will discuss all of this with Randy. There's more: Jay King of Mass Live will hop on to discuss how the team has been handling all these losses since the calendar flipped to the New Year.  They may be saying all the right things, but ... And it'd be interesting to find out what Rajon Rondo really feels about now as well as his future in Boston. Lastly, Rich and LHR go Around the NBA in 5.
